Two of the Same
but we don't all have the same horizon.
After a whole month of blogging, I feel as if I have so much to catch up on after taking only two days off. I also had quite the productive knitting weekend. There was some knitting group, some nice long phone calls, and Harry Potter on TV. Delightful.
Mostly. I did do a bit more knitting than I exactly have to show here. Why is that you may ask? The photo on the right isn't entirely clear, so let me orient you. On the top is half of the right side of the cardigan, with buttonholes, just before the armhole and neck shaping. Underneath is the "finished" er, right, front of the cardigan.
Oops. Two of the same. Momentarily distressed, I pushed forward. With the buttonholes there was no way to make the new right the left, so I frogged the first half back to the armhole shaping and knit them both up together. Lots of denim knitting. My hands might be permanently dyed indigo.
There's another lesson in here - at least for me. In another knitting time and another knitting place, I might have temporarily abandoned this project. Right now, I can't really. I have very few projects on the needles right now, and my Clean Slate by 2008 goals keep me from starting too many more. So I kept at it. The lesson? That I get my projects done way faster if I have fewer of them. Not one, mind you, just fewer.
This is all taking shape into some Grand Plans for 2008. Details to follow. In the meantime, try to make one of each pattern piece. Sheesh.
